Cate came up with the idea of a studio tour and I love seeing where people create. I couldn't pass this opportunity up.
This will be a photo intense entry and I am going to upload my latest Video Prompt too. I have put off blogging all week just for today.
This was given to me by Kristine Mays, it was intended to help me rust fabrics, but I have used it as art ever since. Kristine's work is great. She can create cloth out of wire. Just amazing.
Here is my video tour:
You can imagine that I love having doors to hide all this stuff. MESS-SY.
But you have to make a mess to create stuff.
This Inspired to Quilt Video Prompt (#6) is about color mixing. This is an exercise that I would have scoffed at early in my creative development. But I ask that you not follow my lead in this respect. Creating a color wheel will help teach very basic concepts and ideas about color, value and hue. If you follow that up with creating color gradations, you willreally get a feel for each color.
Here is a close up of my color wheel.
I entered a piece named Happiness in an online contest called Nature's Best. This is in the small projects category and I would love to win. Vote for me, vote Happiness, please?
I am also going to host a give away. Leave a comment telling me about where you create, if you have dedicated space or a 6x9 foot sewing closet like mine and you will be entered to win a copy of my DVD. The contest will end in one week on Saturday, *October* 10. Especially leave a comment to your blog, if you are participating. Either way, you have a chance-no worries if you do not have a blog!
I hope you win.
